Related to: Knowing Words, Play

Activities focused on linking pictures and words to real objects helps children understand the relationship between real items and words. Actitivies using everyday objects will help familiarize your child with those objects.

Collect and label pictures of things your child can easily find in your house: fruits, toys, furniture or household objects. Show your child a picture. Say, “Oh look! Here is a picture of an apple. I know there is a real apple around here somewhere. Can you find it?” Have your child bring you the object and compare it to the picture
